Applications
Methyl octanoate-ethanol mixtures constitute the biodiesel-bioethanol surrogate fuel and kinetics of its oxidation has been studied experimentally in a jet-stirred reactor. Deoxygenation of methyl octanoate over alumina-supported Pt has been studied in both the vapor phase in a flow reactor and in the liquid phase in a semi-batch reactor. It is also used to make other chemicals.

Solubility
Insoluble in water.

Notes
Stable under recommended storage conditions. Incompatible with oxidizing agents.
